Wow they are great. How did you get the smile line so crisp on your own hand? Are they white tips or did you use white powder? x

Hey thanks guys :)
I used white acrylic on the free edge...not really sure how i managed to get the smile line right,it's far from purfect but i was quite pleased with my first attempt :) i used NSI acrylic and my new EzFlow 508 brush, i tidied the smile line up a bit by doing it 'reverse'...u know when u poke it into place from the other side...i'm not very good with words,you'll have to excuse me! lol xx

I think they look lovely. Ive just done my first set with pink & white too and your smile line looks much better than mine lol.
Is there anything you would change?

For your first set of P&W, these are very good :)
If you want to get REAL polished, here is something to work on:
-Your free edges are a bit flared- look straight at the nail, and make a perfectly straight line from the cuticle to the free edge on the sidewall- if it's perfectly straight, it will "cut off" the outward edges on the left and the right side of the nail.
-A couple of nails show highlights at the cuticle line, particularly the middle finger- which means that you may have too much product in that area. Be sure the cuticle and sidewalls are flush to the nail, and that there is a definite curve in the dead center of the nail to create your apex.
Work on consistency in your mix ratio, and keep practicing! You are off to a good start :)
